In light of the most recent Government advice, Sage Gateshead will be closed to the public until further notice and therefore the summer term of classes and workshops are cancelled. We will be in touch with customers who have tickets for classes in due course. Please bear with us during these unprecedented times. The health and safety of audiences, musicians and staff at Sage Gateshead is our priority.
